RETIREMENT (kind of…)

The pieces are slowly falling into place for my near-total retirement from clinical work (clinical means work associated with seeing and treating patients). Once that’s over I will be posting a longish account of the strange difficulty I have had accomplishing this retirement in an honourable and ethical way. But meantime just to let my many readers know that although I hope I will soon pass care of my my frail elderly patients to capable other clinical people, I intend to continue my medicolegal work and to also maintain a consulting practice helping other primary care doctors with difficult frail patient problems.
